Bishops Bible 1568



2:1I exhort therefore, that firste of all, prayers, supplications, intercessios and geuynge of thankes be made for all men:
2:2For kynges, and for all that are in auctoritie, that we maye leade a quiete and peaceable lyfe, in all godlynesse and honestie.
2:3For that is good and accepted in the syght of God our sauiour,
2:4Who wyll haue all men to be saued, and to come vnto the knowledge of the trueth.
2:5For [there is] one God, and one mediatour of God and men, the man Christe Iesus:
2:6Who gaue him selfe a raunsome for all, a testimonie in due tymes.
2:7Wherevnto I am ordeined a preacher and an apostle (I tell the trueth in Christe, and lye not) a teacher of the gentiles in fayth and veritie.
2:8I wyll therefore, that the men praye euerywhere, lyftyng vp holy handes, without wrath and reasonyng.
2:9Lykewyse also the women, that they araye them selues in comely apparell, with shamefastnesse, and discrete behauiour, not in brayded heere, either golde or pearles, or costly aray:
2:10But (that becommeth women professyng godlynesse) through good workes.
2:11Let the woman learne in scilence in all subiection.
2:12But I suffer not a woman to teache, neither to vsurpe auctoritie ouer ye man, but to be in scilence.
2:13For Adam was first fourmed, then Eue.
2:14And Adam was not deceaued: but the woman beyng deceaued, was in the transgression.
2:15Notwithstandyng through bearyng of chyldren she shalbe saued, yf they continue in fayth and loue, and holynesse, with modestie.
Bishops Bible 1568

Bishops Bible 1568

The Bishops' Bible was produced under the authority of the established Church of England in 1568. It was substantially revised in 1572, and the 1602 edition was prescribed as the base text for the King James Bible completed in 1611. The thorough Calvinism of the Geneva Bible offended the Church of England, to which almost all of its bishops subscribed. They associated Calvinism with Presbyterianism, which sought to replace government of the church by bishops with government by lay elders. However, they were aware that the Great Bible of 1539 , which was the only version then legally authorized for use in Anglican worship, was severely deficient, in that much of the Old Testament and Apocrypha was translated from the Latin Vulgate, rather than from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. In an attempt to replace the objectionable Geneva translation, they circulated one of their own, which became known as the Bishops' Bible.
